    Welcome to the forum, it does sound like you have some issues that may need to be addressed, sounds way too low to be normal.

    Local streets = stop signs and traffic signals? You're burning up your gas when stopped and going slowly. Use the trip odometer, zero it out at next fill-up. There is more info you need to add, not just the average mpg, but also the average speed and the number of hours driven. All that is in the EVIC and available and it will explain your mpg.

    For instance, I'm now getting about 25 mpg, which is much lower than everyone else. BUT, if you look at my average SPEED, it's 18 mph. Why is my average speed so low? Because the gas is being used all the time the car is running, including while I'm stopped at traffic lights (0 mph, 0 mpg). And the number of hours shows that I'm driving plenty long, but much of the time I'm driving is very slowly in PARKING LOTS and stuck at signals.

    I don't drive much either, and I don't expect to get very good mpg in local "to the store" drives. It's always going to be low mpg, because the traffic signals and stop signs are still there. It will be low in whatever I drive.

    Chances are, you and I would do just fine with an electric car. If we had a place to plug it in. Irregular short trips, no huge long trips. The car would be plugged in and fully charged almost all of the time. And then taken out for those short trips that would normally suck up the gas in a regular car. We're the ones the electric car is made for. And I can't use it without a plug.

    Also, since I don't drive much, any additional cost over my Lounge might not be practical. I wouldn't make up the difference in costs in my lifetime.

    I've always been surprised by my average speed is so low (last I checked - 28mpg). I think if you get on an open road and get to a speed where you can get the car into top gear and maintain a steady speed, you'll see what the car can do. In my case, a steady 45 mph yields the highest mpgs. These roads are a little tough to find around here, though. Throw some hills and stop and go and the mpgs plummet!

    The test for the mpg from Honda HQ for my former 2009 Fit was as follows:
    Gas station next to/near freeway, fill up to first click.
    Get on freeway, keep steady speed of about 55 mph, driving 50 miles in one direction, turn around, come back, driving the same.
    Get off freeway where you started, gas up again to first click.

    This allows you to see several things. For the Honda, it was to compare the computerized mpg with done by hand mpg. They should match, of course, but that was the year that we had problems with the car's reported mpg. This allowed a report to be sent in to Honda showing the difference between the car and by hand.

    This also flabbergasted me, as the mpg in the Fit was like 45 mpg. In the automatic base model. I never, ever got that in my travels. But it was due to my KIND of traveling, where and how I drove. I still haven't done this in the Fiat, but I plan to. That's when you can find out truly what the car is capable of. You want an uncrowded, fairly flat freeway, with little need for braking or accelerating. Just a nice steady pace.

    Once you've done the test, you can feel very good about the mpg in your car. It's not the car's fault we have to drive in poor mpg conditions. It's just where we live and what we do.

    Also, that is how you can compare on a more level basis, what the highway mpg is, if everyone is doing the same driving test to compare. It's also a great excuse to go for a nice long drive.

    Just turned over 28000 miles on my 2012 Pop automatic. Overall mileage at 39mpg; driven 500 miles per week of about 90% daily commute on two-lane 55 mph highway. I set the cruise at 57 mph and watch the InE bounce between 35-55mpg. Absolutely love it for the mileage and the fun. Weekends are my Sport mode around town running errands.

    When my wife was using the pop auto for work(12mi each way stop-in-go 35-45mph) she got 30-32 and now that we have been using it for short trips only 1-2 mi's 30 mph stop-n-go it's only getting 24 mpg....not really happy about that but our Santa Fe 3.5 AWD only got 13mpg for the same..I should be happy

    Also I checked avg mph 17mph
